      I've been a long-time voyeur of your group, enjoying the chit-chat about one
      of my favorite contemporary poets. Yesterday, Paul Harvey mentioned Don in
      the context of his and "his Angel's" honeymoon in Hawaii many years ago,
      leading me to believe that perhaps he (who is a contemporary of Don's) might just
      have known Don. In any case, I was discussing Don with my friend today who
      is also an admirer of those wonderfully expressive poems that we so admire,
      and she mentioned that long ago she heard a recording of some of Don's poems,
      and I think she might have heard the Franklyn McCormack rendition of
      Vagabond's House. I'd really love to find a copy of that as a Christmas present for
      her. Does anyone in the group have any idea of where I could find one?
      I'd really appreciate hearing about it. I've been to the McCormack site and
      seen listed several intriguing items, but nothing seems to be available on
      EBay or at Amazon.
      Thanks in advance for any input.
      Franklyn MacCormack - Vagabond's House (Torch Records TST-100, 1971) After
      his death, Torch Records put out at least one set of readings. "Volume 1.
      Franklyn MacCormack recites the Don Blandings Immortal Classic The Vagabond's
      House and Farewell to Vagabond's House. Plus Carl Sigman's Love Story and Rod
      McKuen & Jacques Brel's If You Go Away. Guitars by Earl Backus and Pat Ferreri,
      vibes by Frank Rullo."

        I do have a copy of it but it is still sealed in its original wrapper, so, I won't open it up. I think Cadia is your best source of information. I do remember a web site I tracked onto about 2 months ago that was dedicated to him. You might check that out also. Good luck..tj
